Uau!!!
16 September 2004 | by DppkjzSee all my reviews

I have to say that this movie is the best Brazilian's one that I've ever seen!!!It's well directed and all the actors did a great job.In my opinion, Camila( Olga ) was just amazing and could transmit to me all the feelings that she felt when she was there acting.I have no words to describe the excellent performance of her.But the other actors also deserve great critics too!!! I think that this was the first movie that Jayme Monjardim directed and he deserves aplauses for that.They filmed in Russia, Germany without leaving Brazil and this is just... :D If you have any opportunity to go to the theatre you should watch Olga. You won't be sorry, I promise you!

;p
